One of the top 5 shows of 1969. Superb versions of each and every song. As good as anything from the Fillmore West run the following week.

This is as good ass it gets. 1969 Dark Stars are in my heart just now. So many of them just get it so right. Later ones might be longer, but never better. This whole show is stellar.
Uncle John's Band

IMO acoustic versions of this song are the best(maybe cos in 1970,the boys singing was at its best,and this song really does need to be sung well.)
Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication

not my favourite combos pair of songs, but this time it's well worth the listen
Scarlet Begonias -> Fire On The Mountain

Grendel- there's your double digit! 10 up votes is not nearly enough for this super combo. This whole show is worth a listen. there's a fine Truckin',a high energy well jammed Wharf Rat and a mental Around and Around encore.
